Local youth selected for Leadership Camp
Garrett Thomas of Ellis County, will participate in the Texas Brigade program this summer. He was selected based on his academic records, interest in wildlife and natural resources, and leadership abilities.
The Texas Brigades’ mission is to empower high school youth with the necessary skills and knowledge in wildlife and fisheries, habitat conservation, land and water stewardship, team-building, communication and leadership to become ambassadors for conservation in order to ensure a sustained wildlife and fisheries legacy for future generations.
There are six Brigade camps being held this summer; two Buckskin Brigades, two Bobwhite Brigades, Bass Brigade, and the Feathered Forces.
There are some openings still available for qualified applicants.
Applications may be downloaded off the website, www. texasbrigades.org.
